Reported by Chris | November 16th, 2016 @ 12:04 AM | in 2.1 Release

I am trying to download the latest version of JBidWatcher but my Norton 360 says the installer is infected by the WS.Reputation.1 virus.
Can you help.

    This is called a "false positive." Report it to Norton/Symantec. Here's the link:

    (And/or get a better antivirus, like maybe the free Microsoft Windows Defender.)

    The 'reputation' signature just means that it's not a popular program among users of Norton, not that it has an actual virus in it.

    I used to work in the AV business (more than two decades ago) and I can say with authority that making people worry about using software that not many others use is an AWFUL idea. :(

    I can help you with that, before installing your software turn off the protection of your Norton 360 antivirus and then install the program and after installation turn on your antivirus protection but that essay shark review is really helpful for the all level of scholars. This way you won't get this error, I hope this will work well. Thank you for informing me about your problem.
